The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll & Mr Hyde




Librivox recording of The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll & Mr Hyde, by Robert Louis Stevenson.

Read by David Barnes

The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde is a novella by the Scottish author Robert Louis Stevenson, first published in 1886. London lawyer Utterson is driven to investigate Edward Hyde, the unlikely protege of his friend Dr Henry Jekyll, suspecting the relationship to be founded on blackmail. The truth is worse than he could have imagined. Jekyll's 'full statement of the case', the final chapter of the book, explores the idea of dual personality that led him to his experiments, and his inexorable and finally fatal descent into evil.

I don't think I had ever read this, so it was great to be able to listen to a recording.

Reader was great.

I thoroughly enjoyed it.

I find Librivox recordings to be kind of hit or miss, but this one is terrific. The book is a lot of fun, and the fellow reading has a perfect tone for it!

I think I have seen many movies that are based on this story by RL Stevenson, but it was interesting to listen to the actual book. Very engrossing story and dive into the human psyche. Reader is very easy to listen to and enjoyable. All in all a wonderful book.

Imagine a scientist who has concocted a potion. With an act of excitement the man tests this potion on himself. With one gulp, he experiences an amazing transformation. And thus, a disturbing creature has arises. This is a story following the lawyer (Mr. Utterson), who tries to discover who this thing is and what is the relationship has between it and his friend, Dr. Jekyll. As he looks deeper and deeper into things, Mr. Utterson uncovers something so horrifying, even he can't keep it inside.
Many thanks Mr David Barnes for your wonderful recording. Highly recommended
